I completed an undergraduate degree in Anthropology at the University of Bristol where I researched friendship dynamics, focusing on the gender differences between male same-sex friendships and female same-sex friendships. I have returned to do my Masters in Anthropology here. I am interested in Social Anthropology, particularly the social intricacies surrounding the practices of body modification, most notably tattooing.

I have come to Anthropology from a background in theatre, film and performance and I am looking at ways of combining these disciplines with anthropological practice. I am exploring ways of using theatre and film as a research method and how to incorporate this method into presenting my research findings. My research interests are gender, embodiment and performance.

I received my BA degree in Ethnology with a minor in Sociology from the University of Heidelberg in Germany. In my dissertation, I investigated indigenous protests against neo-extractivist projects in Ecuador, revealing links between small-scale resistance to the major processes of globalisation as intensifying and dynamic interconnections as well as political ontology and corporate social responsibility.
Currently for the MA in Anthropology at the University of Bristol, I am exploring the ontology of design and the morality surrounding the designing of products. Products are understood as non-humans and therefore underlie the Western idea of subject versus object. However, because of this, the design of a seemingly powerless object can have unintended consequences for society and can be understood in a similar manner to the way earth beings were designed and translated into the language of law in Ecuador in 2008.

I obtained my BSc in Zoology from Bristol in June 2019 and spent most of my final year debating what I was
going to do next before finally settling on undertaking a part-time Masters in Anthropology. I’ve always been
fascinated in researching human impacts on the world around us and thought that, in order to try and implement real change, it would be best to study people and the human perspective as well as understanding the natural world.
Previously I’ve studied bats and bees and how human developments such as windfarms or roads can affect their populations. Furthermore, in the future I want to research the impact of wildlife and popular science media on public opinion and behaviour. This was driven by observing the effects of shows like Blue Planet and Blackfish which went someway to altering how people in the western world interact with their environment.

Coming from a background in Pathology and Microbiology, I have taken a slight side-step to further integrating both social and biological knowledge. This pairs at an intersection that revolves heavily around the microbiome and its human interactions. I therefore have interests in medical and social anthropology, comparative knowledge especially in biomedicine, the body and multi-species interactions.
